Elder Peterson 1/28/13

I am writing to let you know that I am alive and well. How are you doing without me? :) The MTC is a pretty crazy experience. I am not going to lie, I was really scared out of my pants to be here. And guess what? On my arrival I was told that I am to be learning Spanish! It is pretty overwhelming. Alright I am just kidding about the Spanish thing, but I am learning about the Gospel a ton! I  never thought that I could grow so much as a person in 4 days. I don't have much time to write you but I would like to share a few things. First thing is that my companion is awesome! His name is Elder LaVecchia and he is from Littleton Colorado. It took us a couple days to get to know each other but now I don't know what I would do without him. Also, I have one of the greatest districts in the whole world! We have grown so close together in the short time we have been here. I don't think that we can get any closer, but I know that as the weeks go on that we will keep growing as Elders and Brothers in the gospel. I just have to say that being at the MTC is an amazing experience. I haven't seen so many Mormons in my whole life! And yes Elder Leavitt was my escort. I have run into him multiple times throughout the past few days. Also, Elder Rios is in my Zone!!! He is actually one door down in our Residence Hall. I have a few pictures that I will be attaching of us. I know that this email is a little jumbled and I am sorry. There is just so much that I want to tell you. And also, the food isn't half bad. And I wish that I would've done laundry more cause I was kind of confused when I came to do laundry. I love being a momma's boy but it has its downsides. Well, I need to hurry cause people are waiting for the computer. But a couple of favors. One, could you PLEASE send me snacks?? I am hungry. Two, I am allowed to have a hoodie on P-Days and I am freezing my butt off. I love you very much and feel free to send this to anyone you want to. I am so grateful to have such a loving family and parents who have raised me in the gospel. I am writing paper letters so don't worry I will write more. Love you guys!
